Well, it is hard to believe that summer is winding down, but my little boy started high school this week. It totally seems like I was just seeing him off to kindergarten... He allowed me to take one photo before he left, so for those who haven't seen him in a while, here was his quick photo as he headed off to meet the bus.
Around here, once our lil' pumpkins are happily back in school, it's time to start planning fall photo sessions and thinking about the holidays. I know it seems early, but my calendar is already starting to fill up for fall and holiday sessions, and available times go quickly this time of year! So plan ahead and consider one of our mini sessions during the month of October!
I am excited to once again be offering our mini sessions at both the beautiful JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh and in Historic Downtown Apex. A mini portrait session is the PERFECT way to update your children's or teen's photos or get some holiday card and gift photos without the time, stress or expense of a full location session! Again this year we will be offering our "you pick the date and time" Minis during the month of October. Mini sessions will be offered weekdays only. There will only be a limited number of mini sessions available per week and available times are often limited. We always have a LOT of interest in our mini sessions and they book up very quickly in the fall, so please call or email Val@ValStonePhotography.com as soon as possible if you have questions or would like to reserve a time for your children or family! 919-637-9894

Step 2: Choose Your Location
You can't go wrong in either spot.
JC Raulston Arboretum is a beautifully maintained garden tucked away right off of Hillsboro St. in Raleigh. With stone walls, a waterfall, tiny ponds, a gazebo, and paths, it's absolutely the perfect spot for traditional and candid garden photos. And with it's smaller size, you can accomplish a lot in 30 minutes.
Downtown Historic Apex has a traditional small town feel, with colorful buildings and shops, painted brick and picket fences. It is an easy walk with young children and a little more urban for those older kids and teens. Being only a few blocks long also makes it a perfect place for a mini session.
Step 3: Schedule your session!
Call 919-637-9894 or email Val@valstonephotography.com to get on the calendar.
And If you just don't think a mini session is going to give you and your family enough time, or you have another location or studio portraits in mind, consider a traditional or digital session this fall. Pricing is on my website. www.valstonephotography.com
I had so much fun looking through old sessions to pick out the images for this post. I can't wait to see you all again!
